The 15th annual Slap Shots for a Cause charity hockey tournament will be held in Mississauga, Ontario on Thursday, May 20, 2004. This growing automotive aftermarket industry event has raised over $70,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society over the years, including $11,000 last year. "The first half dozen games or so were held in Kitchener, and then later moved to Mississauga," said Board member Brad Shaddick. "As the popularity of the event grew, we required twin ice pads. We may need additional ice, as the event gets bigger. The participants are from all facets of the industry (jobbers, WD’s, manufacturers, etc.) and we now have numerous corporate sponsors of our game sweaters". The SSFAC Board of Directors hope to have about 44 to 50 players this year, and would like to add to the list of corporate sweater sponsors. For $125.00, a company can sponsor a sweater (with the company logo added to the sweater). The player cost is $100, which includes two hours of ice time and post game food and refreshments. The Board consists of: Bill Hay (Mark IV Automotive), Kent Rennie (Castrol Canada), Jim McIntosh (Gates Canada), Dean Clarke (Tenneco Automotive), Jack Brooks (Dana Canada), Cameron Young (Bosch Canada), Matt O’Brien (Grant Bros. Sales), and Brad Shaddick (Federal-Mogul). "The intent is to have a fun afternoon playing hockey as an industry group and socializing after the game, while raising some money for a good cause," said Shaddick. If your company would like to sponsor a sweater (or two) for this year’s event, please e-mail Cameron Young at Bosch Canada: (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you would like to participate in this year’s games, please e-mail Jim McIntosh at Gates Canada: (email@example.com). Unfortunately, they may not be able to accommodate all requests to play.The SSFAC Board also wishes to recognize Matthew.Scott Marketing for sponsoring the ice rental and the post event hospitality in 2004.
